Gwyneth Paltrow Cooking Series #22: Perfect & Easy Lobster Club Salad

Lobster Cobb

I had to take a few weeks off from cooking from My Father’s Daughter because it was too heavy to pack for vacation. However, I did copy a recipe and take it along with me for this salad. Since we would be seaside I wanted to make this delicious salad. I actually could make this anytime because we have fresh lobster at our coastal fish store, but this casual meal was just perfect for a family vacay. It came together in no time at all and was simply scrumptious. It was like a dressed up Lobster Cobb with a light vinaigrette. I loved the seafood flavor and the salty bacon together. While I wouldn’t consider this ideal cool weather food, I won’t let that stop me from making it one more time this season!

Perfect Lobster Club Salad

adapted from My Father’s Daughter

8 slices bacon (Paltrow recommends turkey or duck bacon)

2 hearts of romaine (or whatever leafy lettuce you have on hand)

1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced

2 cups cooked lobster meat, finely chopped

1 cup small grape tomatoes, halved


1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon maple syrup

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

Salt & Pepper

1. To Make the Vinaigrette: Whisk together the mustard, maple syrup, and vinegar. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, fold in the chives and season with salt and pepper.

2. Cook the bacon in a frying pan until crispy. Drain on paper towels and dice. Arrange the lettuce on a plate and arrange the lobster, avocado, bacon and tomatoes on top. Drizzle it all with the vinaigrette and serve.
